Recycling household electronics

Recycling household electronics

We host electronic recycling drop-off events during the year. We'll update this page with the latest events as they get added.

Please keep in mind

Our electronic dropoff events are for Boston residents only. We don't take commercial material from businesses. You can find out more about the materials we will — and won't — take at these events at the bottom of this page.
